Feature Request: Telnet

Currently I'm unsure on if telnet is implementable or not. However I had been told that a telnet to irc plugin was doable. Given my current knowledge of C is nonexistent, whenever someone has the time, could someone look into the feasibility of this as a feature?

My thoughts are that telnet servers would show up as a buddy (like any other conversation/or chat room) and so could be accessed either via the 'main' room you're dumped in with root, or in its own /msg window.

Closing all protocol request tickets.

For most of the requested protocols, it's likely we won't have time and/or interest to implement them, and some tickets have stayed open here for years when they have libpurple implementations, or even as third party plugins. Implementing protocols in the core is far from a priority nowadays, although I hope we can make it easier to write third party plugins. As always, anyone who is interested in implementing bitlbee plugins for these can do so, and we're willing to help (join irc!)

Heh this one is weird.
